Nice to Meet You, No Way.
What are you waiting for?
I’ve not just arrived,
I’ve been here the whole time,
Waiting for you to come by
To pass by me,
To remind me of it all
Of what love feels and does.
Tell me, have you been waiting too?
Quit waiting then, and
Make sure that no one else comes
To lay claim,
Because they would,
Because they most certainly will.
Take me away,
Before it’s too late
Because I’m lost, indeed,
But in you I’ve found something to renew
I’ve found you and me.
That may well be
All we ever need
and here it goes
and there it comes hitting me again—slapping me directly in the middle of the face—
working its way down to my open chest,
and claiming a heart unknown to true love before,
that’s where it goes, that's where his love lands—before it grasps me by the hand and
leads me home, almost home, nearly there into his own unknown, lovestruck world
where we can ride camels at night,
and drink wine all the time,
well, he will have one beer, just one please,
before the jacks come out to play,
and his cool always remains the same,
that’s my preferred—his damn cool vibe and how it transforms me in a damn cool girl too—
job well done,
still remains unfinished,
because we aren’t home yet,
because we aren’t nearly there since we just met,
right, i just met my new best friend,
now we go at it again,
until the buttons are loose
and the goose runs out,
and the chains all shatter,
and my voice gets lost in the middle,
right in the middle of the halfway point,
where i lost my soul and you let yours run,
and we found the unknowns
and we hung them to dry and we let ourselves go
and we got lost inside, inside those eyes.
Down to Earth
Done it all before
Won the game before
Owe nothing to the universe
Except having you,
You have me, too.
In the, in the
